Bake Your Life


BAKE YOUR LIFE

Capture the essence of ones soul,
Stir it up in a lifeless bowl.
Add the wisdom of life’s mistakes
And watch it closely as it bakes.

Taste the moments as they pass,
As true life molds are made at last.
Catch the scent of future plights,
And watch it closely in future nights.

Careful, for what you think.
Daytime, nighttime, do not blink.
Careful, for what you are,
Do not wish up on a star.

Life’s desires are made like this,
From what you want and what you wish.
They’re baked inside your heart and soul.
They’re bright as day or dark as Coal.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
